UI supporting table height via CSS
This is a bug for the UI to allow users set a table height (via CSS). This bug should cover both the insert dialog and the table properties dialog's table tab.
Please note that table height set with CSS doesn't mean the same thing as table height set with HTML (though height set with HTML doesn't really mean *anything). When you set table height in percentages with HTML, Mozilla calculated the height relative to the height of the window (canvas/viewport really), but CSS height is relative to the table's containing box.
It is true that "height set with HTML doesn't really mean anything" : the HTML4 element TABLE does *not* have a HEIGHT attribute... Its meaning is only determined by common browsers' practice. See http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/tables.html#edef-TABLE
Why do we have a request for just table height CSS? We will be working on UI for general CSS attribute editing -- will that cover this issue?
Table height is a separate bug because it may or may not be supported with CSS1 support in Composer in the next major revision. Also, it's clearer with the dependencies to have this bug pulled out specifically.

This bug is fully covered by the CSSization of Composer; closing as dup of bug 77705. (and it works just fine in my own build :-) ) The UI for table height is only visible when the css pref is checked. It means that we keep generating correct html table markup. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 77705 ***
